Home Farm 1Tropical Exterior, Charleston
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Lowcountry style is in the smaller details. "There are so many things that make a home distinctly Charleston, but the shutters are what does it on this home," says interior designer Alix Bragg. "The old-school style of the louvered shutters (painted Charleston green) is a staple in the Lowcountry. Of course, the palm trees and metal roof give it away too!" See the rest of this home
Alix and Mark modeled their home after an older house they loved on Sullivan Beach. Silver was chosen as the color for the metal roof because it reflects the sun's rays, keeping the home cooler. You'll notice the stairs are incorporated inside the footprint of the home. Alix and Mark were inspired to design them this way in the style of the plantation homes they had seen in Louisiana.
